Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.
Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up—um, what?—in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down—along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.

𝗠𝗬 𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚: 4 stars
𝗚𝗘𝗡𝗥𝗘/𝗦𝗨𝗕𝗚𝗘𝗡𝗥𝗘𝗦: Women’s Fiction
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: The Seven Day Switch is an excellent tribute to one of my favorite movies from the past; Freaky Friday! I don’t recall ever reading a book about true life swaps so this one was a big treat for me!

I love women’s fiction novels especially those that involve parenting so this one was a really great pick for me. Not only that it’s a retelling of Freaky Friday so I knew I just had to read it! I can’t even tell you how many times I watched that movie when I was younger! I loved it so much and while this book is different than the movie, the concept is the same! The biggest difference of course is that this one involves two complete opposite mothers who swap lives after having one to many sangrias!
Celeste and Wendy are as different as two people can be. Celeste is a stay-at-home 𝗠𝗢𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗥 𝗢𝗙 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗬𝗘𝗔𝗥 type who lives for perfection while Wendy is more of a 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗠𝗢𝗠 who prefers the hustle and bustle rather than following her children around all day long. You can just imagine the hysteria that ensues when these two swap bodies for one week! A lot of meltdowns (from the moms not the kids), confusion, anger, and even… enlightenment? You’ll have to read it so see how they get there!
One of my favorite things about this book has to be the 𝗥𝗔𝗪𝗡𝗘𝗦𝗦 of the story. While I certainly didn’t expect this, the story has very serious undertones to it. Marriage is one of those things that becomes a priority in this novel and while it’s not overtly talked about in the story readers can see one of the marriage crumbling before their very eyes. It’s quite sad in the scheme of things but I enjoyed how the author didn’t write this in just a light and fluffy way- serious issues are discussed and revealed throughout the story making it a very powerful (and fun) read!
I won’t get into the entire book because readers should be able to read a book without knowing every single detail, but I will say that I enjoyed it (quite more than I thought it would) and 𝗥𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗗 𝗜𝗧. The only thing that I didn’t care for about this book is how long it felt! The page count is a little over 300 pages but while I was reading it seemed like double that!
